Re: 130/140gr vlds on deer
I shot a pretty large bodied mule deer last year at 400yds with the 130gr VLD out of a 260AI, muzzle velocity was 3000fps. 1/4'ng away it entered just in front of the last rib and found it on the hide of the far shoulder. Deer was DRT. Bullet remained fairly entact except for the tip, looks like it clipped the rib and tumbled through the body cavity.
